Big Island man charged with throwing weapon

By Associated Press

KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) Hawaii County police say a 58-year-old Big Island man is facing an attempted murder charge for throwing an "edged weapon" at an officer.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Saturday that Joseph Feliciano has also been booked on several other charges, including resisting arrest and second-degree assault.

Authorities say police were called Thursday afternoon to a disturbance at Feliciano's home in Keaau.

They say Feliciano, failed to comply with officers' orders to put down a two-edged weapon.

Feliciano is accused of then throwing the weapon at the officer, who managed to avoid getting hit.

He was treated and released for minor injuries.

Police say Feliciano is also charged with allegedly hitting a 48-year-old woman in the face at his home day before this incident.

He will appear in court Monday.
